The Board of Clark County Commissioners on behalf of the Clark County Department of Job and Family
Services releases this Request for Proposals for the purpose of providing workplace experiences for its Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) for low-income Clark County youth ages 16-24 and foster children ages 16-18.
The county seeks to potentially fund one provider who will find viable worksites for youth determined eligible for
the TANF SYEP and/provide soft-skills training.
Through this program, the provider will:
- Provide innovative work experiences that help youth gain marketable skills;
- Connect youth’s education and career choice with the employment placement;
- Offer structured work experiences in public and non-profit organizations, as well as private sector businesses
The proposed program must be designed to achieve specific, measurable outcomes. Programs may provide summer employment opportunities as work crews or as customized, individual placements.
Preferred worksite locations are public non-profits or government entities, but may include private sector worksites.
